THE Action Democratic Party, (ADP) has dissociated itself from the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) which was formed on Monday.
About 36 political parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the alliance aimed at dislodging the All Progressives Congress, (APC).
Findings revealed that about 20 parties have since withdrawn from the deal.
But addressing journalists on Wednesday in Abuja, national chairman of the ADP, Engineer Yagbayi Sani said his party pulled out of the alliance before the deal was sealed.
He noted that the ADP national working committee discovered to its consternation that it was a mere membership drive by the erstwhile ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).
He further declared that a party that was in control for 16 years and run the country aground could not drive the change the electorate in Nigeria were craving for.
He said: Let me say here for the avoidance of doubt that we are not part of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP). ADP is the third force that will provide the Credible Alternative Nigerians passionately yearn to end hunger, wanton killings and executive lawlessness.
“At our inception in June 2017, we proclaimed to Nigerians that ADP is a child of necessity that will deepen democracy and good governance to establish the credible political platform that will rescue the country from the imminent collapse of the political space. We also promised that ADP will introduce a corruption free leadership selection process that will create a new leadership class with commitment, focus and force of will to rebuild the Country after the damage done by PDP and APC.
“We vowed that we would provide an All-inclusive Governance Model that would mobilize and unite all Nigerians to build a new nation.
